Le Tartuffe is one of my favorite restaurants. The first and only time I ate there was when Clint and I were still dating and we were visiting his parents in Ottawa. Last week when Clint went to visit his parents and they had dinner at Le Tartuffe. I was not able to join them.
This review is written by our guest blogger Heather Stark (Clint’s mom) and brings back wonderful memories of this place. I hope to eat there again one day…hint, hint.
To celebrate the occasion of Clint’s visit to Ottawa, we crossed the River into Quebec, to enjoy a delicious meal at Le Tartuffe, situated in an historic house in a former working class neighbourhood of Hull, Quebec. Le Tartuffe is located at 133, Notre-Dame-de-L’Ile, one corner west of the Museum of Civilization.
Classic French cuisine with modern touches
We ended the evening with Raspberry Creme Brule, and a Chocolate Pecan Tart. No photos are available as we devoured the desserts too quickly. A Quebec cheese course is available before dessert.
The ambiance of the patio added to the enjoyment of the evening. The patio is covered with vines and small patches of greenery including ferns growing beside the stone floor. The service was impeccable. Improve the quality of the white plastic furniture and all would be perfect.
